Class Description: For those of you that have either never done embroidery (and would like to try it) OR would like a “refresher course”, this is the class for you! We will talk about threads, needles, fabrics, and designs. We will make a sampler of basic stitches for surface embroidery. Once you are comfortable with this group of stitches, you can do simple things – or complicated things – and anything in between!

The stitches we will practice and put onto our sampler include a running stitch, double running stitch, stem (or outline) stitch, back stitch, blanket stitch, French knot, chain stitch, and detached chain stitch. With time (and group interest) we could go into further versions of the previously mentioned stitches. I’m there to teach and am happy to follow your interest!

Students bring $6 to first day of class for embroidery materials which include fabric, a variety of threads, needles, and written instructions. This will be paid to the instructor on the first day of class. Instructor will also bring good quality hoops available for purchase if needed for $8.

Please note: this is not a cross-stitch class.
